Stuttgart have completed the signing of Germany Under-21 midfielder Roberto Hilbert on a four-year deal.
The 21-year-old Greuther Furth star, who will cost Stuttgart é¼1.3 million (£890,000), agreed a contract at the Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadion after passing a medical on Tuesday.
The right-sided player has been in great form during his club's promotion push this season and was also reportedly high on the summer shopping lists of FC Nurnberg and Arminia Bielefeld.
Hilbert follows Mainz playmaker Antonio Da Silva as the second new signing at Stuttgart, as coach Armin Veh attempts to revamp his squad after a disappointing Bundesliga season that has seen the Schwaben fail to qualify for Europe.
